“The Weight of the Nation”: Watch it tonight!

There’s an excellent documentary tonight on obesity in the U.S.: The Weight of the Nation (8:00 pm, HBO). From the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation:

The documentary is part of a public service campaign that encourages action at the personal, community, and national levels to prevent obesity. To raise awareness of the obesity epidemic and support action to reverse it, HBO is providing free online access to the entire documentary, as well as topic-specific segments, action steps, discussion guides, and other materials at http://theweightofthenation.hbo.com/. The series also will be viewable on YouTube.

Check it out–it promises to be a remarkable show.
